is not executing war powers in a consistent and endless way? >> ron, you are a student of leadership, both a student of good leadership and bad leadership. i feel like leaders good and bad can generally be counted on to never give up power that they have been granted. if this president does draw a hard line under the war, the war on terror and say the war is over and the powers associated with this war are no longer the powers of this office, i mean, is that a fantasy? is this something you can imagine this president doing? >> you know, if he's going to do it, this constitutional law president, it will be in this term. it might be to the end of the term. the issues, no matter what happens on some of these sort of legal sort of standards, the issues in a way don't change. small groups of people can get their hands on weapons that were once powerful and reserved for nations. that doesn't change. that's carried by technology and it's one of the great perils of the modern age. that rule of law dually designated to shape the u.s. policies. now here, let's be clear on what's at stake here. it's
's senior political analyst ron bram's team. thank you both for coming in. ron, you wrote an interesting column, i just read it, in the national journal about democrats having a more unified coalition after the election in november. what sort of negotiating advantage is that supposed to give them in the fiscal cliff situation. >> i think it's almost the inverse of what we saw in 2010 after big democratic losses in that election. the caucus was divided in the house and senate on whether to extend the bush tax cuts for everyone. republicans were unified, they insisted it be extended for everyone. president obama ultimately made a deal to extend them as you know, for two years for all taxpayers, which is how we are where we are now. democrats are virtually in lock step showing cracks, saying maybe we need to extend for those in the middle. it's a different circumstance. i think the leverage on the tax side, at least is clearly with the democrats, stalemates mean the tax cuts expired and democrats are more willing to live with that than republicans are. >> when you read between the lines her
senator bob kerry and a former staffer for pennsylvania governor ed rendell. ron is a former communications director to the house speaker, dennis hastert. good to see you both. >> good to sigh. >> gregg: donna, let's start with what the president was offering a. even democrats are criticizing him for demanding 150 billion in more spending. not less, including a $50 billion stimulus this next year. at a time when the focus perhaps should be on spending cuts, are those democrats right? >> well, i'm hearing many more democrats resonating with the message that the president is delivering and that message is that he ran on and got elected on the basis of more taxes for the most wealthy americans. i think that there is a real danger for republicans in not really hearing that message. i've been impressed by the number of republicans that have made positive indications that more revenue could be forth coming, even in the form of tax increases on the most wealthy americans. and i think that there is a little bit of danger i think for the republican party as they redefine themselves as

. the current says well we have isn't working. >> we had a lot of interviews with ron paul during his presidential run. we talked about gold. what do you make of getting rid of the dollar bill? do you care about that? >> you mean for a coin? >> yes. too expensive to print. >> that doesn't really matter. look, the bigger question we have a lot bigger fish to fry than whether we use a dollar bill or a coin for a $1 note. the bigger problem is the debasement that that represents. the dollar's down over the last four decades. since we went off gold in august of '71 we're down 82%. and to what end, right? is it helping us with respect to employment? obviously not. employment ratios are down. is it helping our financial system? no. the big three banks are in a world of trouble. they all three trade at less than book. so what exactly are we getting out of all this monetary debasement? the one thing we're getting is a runaway spending in washington, d.c. that's the effect of this unlimited print mag sheen that the federal reserve has. >> let's put some gold into the equation. gold as legal te
leagues in the area. the reality is this. in the football coach ron we always talked to fight through it. the breaking point as we talk about earlier when you come to the realization of who do we leave this responsibility, and this responsibility to? at some point we have to take that responsibility from the coaches and even the leagues because many leagues i work with our own, not governed by u.s. a football at pop warner. scott can't come down until every coach in the united states of america that this is the way you need to do it so what we try to do with the league and i will share this as an example that this is what you are fighting at the grass-roots level, number one, i played eight -- we went to a league and approached the league and did you know what we want to do? we played at the highest levels so there is a model standard already out there. be nfl and the nfl p a set the standard for you've coaches. the problem is they don't embrace changes because it is all about winning. when it is good, nobody remembers years from now. what matters is the effect of the game. what we tried
and appreciated the comments about various boards, people forget that and ron was compliant already with sarbanes oxley board requirements so it would not have made a difference. it is helpful to get a little background, what led you to pick the firm is you did for failure and success? >> next question. we started out, i was looking all over for successful firms and i remember asking about a number of firms and making preliminary contacts, they were not relevant to what we were looking at, the commission was looking at a range of firms so that gave me my opening. when we interviewed fannie mae and the deep dive going down from the ceo through people inside the organization, we didn't have time, we only had a year to finish our work and we worked on a tight budget but i insisted we do some studies of freddie mac, let's find out what the parallels are so we interviewed a number of risk officers at freddie mac and the ceo and others and it built out, and when i said back at the end i looked and the one institution we didn't interview was td bank in canada, we didn't interview td bank but i started l
